The first Scottish Highland Games is thought to have been hosted by Malcom Canmore in the 11th century, when clan chieftains would select their strongest men to compete. This tradition continued until the 19th century, following the failed Jacobite rebellions when the Highland culture became suppressed, causing the Highland Games to be almost eradicated. However, Queen Victoria resurrected the games as she introduced the Braemar Gathering in 1832, which is now celebrated globally in the US, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and several other places.
